“What is more important than the way we relate to each other? “ This is the question central to “Social Studies” at Links Hall. The show features three dance artists presenting works that investigate our relationship to each other and our environment. Kendall Loyer explores the give and take of love and loyalty during high school in a strangely nostalgic piece set to her high school’s alma mater, a wistful love song and several confessional monologues. Aislinn Gagliardi explores the concept of isolation within a group in a piece that searches for connection between an endless landscape filled with a merciless sun and a constant parade of group snapshots. Megan Rhyme presents an eerily moving piece about three ancient and crooked women. She investigates the line between sexuality and desperation as a solo performer in a Cinderella gown. Special guests Susan Aldous and Margaret Rose Breffeilh will show dance films, and the paintings of guest artist Joanna Raabe will be displayed during and after the performance. (William Scott)
